Hi! My name is Peyton (she/they) and I am currently a graduate student in the Lewis and Clark Professional Mental Health Counseling - Specialization in Addictions program. I was born and raised in a small town in Wisconsin but moved here for this program and Portland already feels like home! I have been with L&C Problem Gambling Services since 2022 and I am passionate about this work because I believe everyone deserves a place to explore their experiences without the weight of stigma and judgement. I believe that connection and insight to one’s own experiences cultivates healing and change.
